Peterbilt to Permanently Close Tennessee Truck Assembly Plant

Peterbilt Motors Company is realigning its North American manufacturing operations, which will result in the permanent closure of its Madison, Tennessee, truck assembly plant, effective December 1.

Production of Peterbilt vehicles will continue at other facilities. The Madison plant has not built trucks since July 2008.

“This was a difficult, but necessary decision,” said Bill Jackson, Peterbilt General Manager. “The current and projected market conditions are very challenging and Peterbilt is aligning its production capacity with market demand. Peterbilt is proud to have been a member of the greater Nashville community for 40 years and we thank our employees for their excellent contribution.”
